   Customers can now purchase or upgrade to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3
   for Dell PowerEdge servers and select Dell Precision workstations
   for the latest enterprise-class performance, scalability and
   reliability.
                                                                              
   Dell customers also can now buy Red Hat training and certification
   courses from Dell, providing added convenience and ease of training
   fulfillment.
                                                                              
   "Dell servers and workstations running this new version of Red Hat
   Enterprise Linux provide customers with a more powerful enterprise
   computing platform to address multiple aspects of scalable
   enterprise computing," said Pete Morowski, vice president of
   software, Dell Product Group. "New features and multiple versions
   of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 can deliver more cost-effective and
   flexible computing for large databases, high-performance computing,
   Web farms and more."
                                                                              
   Customers who deploy Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 on Dell servers and
   workstations will now have support for larger memory configurations
   and enhanced hyperthreading and security features.
                                                                              
   Dell will support all three versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3
   to best address end-to-end deployment needs from backend data
   center applications to edge-of-network applications and workstation
   environments. The versions are:
                                                                              
     * Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 AS -- recommended for deployment on
       four processor PowerEdge servers used for enterprise
       applications, such as Oracle databases and application
       clustering;
     * Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 ES -- designed for Web serving, file
       and print and small-to-medium businesses that use PowerEdge
       servers with one to two processors;
     * Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 WS -- designed for Dell Precision
       workstation users for tasks such as graphical rendering and
       software development, and for high-performance computing
       clusters.
                                                                              
   Dell is adding new levels of convenience for its Red Hat users by
   enabling customers to purchase Red Hat global training offerings
   from Dell.  Training packages bought through Dell can be completed
   at either Red Hat training centers or at the customer site using
   Dell hardware.  This program will be available in EMEA and Japan
   later this year.
                                                                              
   Dell customers already subscribed to the Red Hat Network or who
   order Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 from Dell can immediately
   upgrade to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 at no additional cost at Red
   Hat's Web site, www.redhat.com.  Dell plans to factory install Red
   Hat Enterprise Linux 3 on Dell PowerEdge servers in February 2004
   and on select Dell Precision workstations in November 2003.
